This was definitely the closest thing I've witnessed when descending on a bike. This was one of my mates descending in Majorca last week, it could have been really horrible, I've no idea how he remained upright and I'm just so glad he didn't end up hitting the end of the wall on the right.

Random musings of a UK based cycling coach. In July 2010 rode the entire Tour de France route starting and finishing 3 days before the pros came through, particularly interested in power based training. Other interests include technology, video recording and editing, photography, sailing, the outdoor life and pretty much anything else!
